Episode 7: Amritsar Vaisakhi Smaagam...


During the week of Vaisakhi, the annual Akhand Keertani Jatha Smaagam was held in Amritsar. It was the first time I had attended a Keertan Smaagam in India. It was great to see Gursikhs from different countries there.

The atmosphere of the Keertan programmes were really energetic and uplifting. Most of the Keertan took place at Gurdwara Bibeksar which is a short walk from Sri Harimandir Sahib. The main Rainsbaaee was held at Gurdwara Manji Sahib in the Sri Harimandir Sahib complex. The Guru Ka Langar was served at the Rangle Sajjan Trust which is just off the road that leads to Baba Attal Rai Jee Gurdwara.

Veer Jee, do you have any recordings of the Smagam, or know any where I can find the Keertan Tracks?
